Troofers Get a Raging Jew Clue

The Hardley Boys are hard at work on the latest Jew Clue.

The article is a recitation of the usual Troofer talking points about what a terrible pilot Hani Hanjour was. As usual Gaffney mentions Freeway Airport:

During three such flights over two days in a single-engine Cessna 172, instructors Sheri Baxter and Ben Conner observed what others had before them. Hanjour had trouble controlling and landing the aircraft. Afterward, Baxter interviewed Hanjour extensively about his flight training and experience, and also reviewed his flight log, which documented 600 hours of flight time. On this basis she and Conner declined to approve a current license rating until Hanjour returned for more training. On their recommendation, Freeway’s chief instructor Marcel Bernard refused to rent Hanjour a plane.

The Troofers always highlight that Bernard refused to rent Hanjour a plane. But if he was such a terrible pilot, why would they give him three test flights? Wouldn't one have been sufficient? The only reason for the additional test flights is obviously because Hanjour was a borderline candidate, an average to below average pilot, as Bernard put it in Loose Change I and II.

Ah, but the intrepid Gaffney has more for us:

It turns out that just three days after Hani Hanjour failed a flight evaluation in a Cessna 172 at Freeway airport he showed up at Congressional Air Charters, located down the road at Gaithersburg airport, also in the Washington suburbs. Once again Hanjour attempted to rent a plane, and again he was asked to go up with an instructor for a flight evaluation to confirm his flight skills. The plane was the same: a Cessna 172. Yet, on this occasion Hanjour passed with flying colors and, later, this other instructor gave testimony to the commission that turned out to be crucial. The final report mentions the instructor’s name only once in a brief endnote buried at the back of the report. The note states:

Hanjour successfully conducted a challenging certification flight supervised by an instructor at Congressional Air Charter of Gaithersburg, Maryland, landing at a small airport with a difficult approach. The instructor thought Hanjour may have had training from a military pilot because he used a terrain recognition system for navigation. Eddie Shalev interview. (Apr. 9, 2004)[24]

And Eddie Shalev is... dun dun duh! A Jew!

But the shocker is the revelation that Eddie Shalev is an Israeli and served in the Israeli army. The file states that “Mr. Shalev served in the Israeli Defense Forces in a paratroop regiment. He was a jumpmaster on a Boeing C-130. Mr. Shalev moved to the Gaithersburg area in April 2001 and was sponsored for employment by Congressional Air Charters...[which] has subsequently gone out of business.”

The memorandum raises disturbing questions. Consider the staffer’s strange choice of words in describing Shalev’s employment. What did Quinn John Tamm mean when he wrote that Shalev “was sponsored for employment”? Did the commission bother to investigate Congressional Air Charters? It is curious that the charter service subsequently went out of business. But the most important question is: just how thoroughly, if at all, did the commission vet Eddie Shalev? Does his military record include service in the Israeli intelligence community?

Of course, the commission should have dropped its investigation into 9-11 and investigated this Israeli. Seriously, the Troofers have become so invested in their theories that anything that tends to undermine them, like the rental of the plane by Congressional Air Charters (which amazingly, Hani did not crash) is the real crime.

Oh, and get this detail:

Real people have known addresses. But the whereabouts of Eddie Shalev has been unknown for years. As reported by David Griffin, a 2007 search of the national telephone directory, plus Google searches by research librarian Elizabeth Woodworth, turned up no trace of him. A LexisNexis search by Matthew Everett also came up dry.[35] Recent searches by Woodworth and myself indicate that an "Eddy Shalev" resided in Rockville, Maryland as recently as 2007. However, the associated phone number is no longer in service.

Um, is it unkind to point out that if the recent search turned up Shalev in 2007, then that 2007 search of the national telephone directory must have been done poorly.

You know what this reminds me of? The idiotic fascination the Troofers have with the Harley guy, the man on the street who said on 9-11 that the towers collapsed because of fire. Never mind NIST, this is the person who implanted the idea that somehow it was not so surprising that the towers collapsed.
